Cannot change my TV to allow my new DVD/VCr to work

I hooked up the new DVD/VCR unit and I cannot get any of the menu screens to show up. I called the manufactuer hot line and they verified I had done all the hook up correctly and I have power to the DVD/VCR player but they told me I need to swith my TV to Aux or game and I do not have those options on my remote control for the TV.

    I want to know if there is any way to use my current remote. If not, once I get a universal remote what will I need to do to get it to work?

  • mgilreath Oct 28, 2008

    There is no AV button on my remote. I already went through all of that with the tech support for the DVD/VCR. There is no AV or Game button on my remote.

You will need to go up to the tv and press the menu button and scroll down the list and see if you find the aux option or the game option in the cable-vcr-aux area under the menu. If you cannot do that or cannot find it under the menu, try changing the channel all the way up past 125 on the tv until it says input 1 or input 2. One of those should work.

Hi,

For starters, it would be to everybody's advantage to know:

  • the brand & model of your TV;
  • the brand & model of your Remote Control; and
  • the brand & model of your DVD/VCR;
  • and how the DVD/VCR is connected to the TV; yellow, red & white cables or a single patch cord.
For the moment, while playing either a known good disc or tape, you may want to try/check:
  • on the front control panel of the TV if there is a button for Audio/Video, A/V, Game or Aux;
  • on either the remote or the front panel control, if there is a button for SOURCE;
  • if the DVD/VCR is hooked up using a single patch cord, then try Channel 3 or 4;
  • try Channel 0.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Do you have an input button on the remote? possibly you need to hold down the menu button for an extending amount of time if it is in store mode.

If you could post a picture of the remote or what buttons that you can choose from, then I can tell you what you should try.

Sir, universal remote control is built for home appliances such as entertainment. if you will going to buy a universal remote control there is an instruction on how to use it. before you buy one just check the universal remote control list of brands and see if your tv or vcr brand are included to those list.

  • buy a universal remote control
  • check the lists of brand
  • input the code of your tv or dvd/vcr to the remote
it should work after that

We have a new vcr snowy


It seems that you need to take the new unit back for exchange, since you are using the same output for the vcr and the dvd and your dvd is giving you a good picture, the vcr is acting up and since it's new either exchange or repair will be needed.

How do i get to the input/video screen on the RCA F32672sb 32


If you have an old vcr hook the dvd player to the inputs on back of the vcr (RCA jacks) Run a coax cable from the "out" on the vcr to the back of tv. Turn the tv on channel 4 or 3 then put a tape in the vcr and push record then pause it. Or if the vcr has a tv/video button you can push or activate it and it should allow the dvd to play through to the tv.

Problem with old TV


The channel is almost always 3 or 4. Be sure you have the VCR connections correct. Just hook up the TV and VCR alone to start with and try both the VCR and DVD. Also the output of the VCR should show a blue screen.

Sanyo TV


Hi,

If I understand your posting/description right, you have:
1, a Sanyo TV with only 1 video input;
2. you have a DVD player with only video output; and
3. you have a VCR (which I will assume to be with both video input and output).

Your query, if I may clarify, is how to hook them up so that you need not connect/disconnect any video cable when you want to switch video source from either DVD or VCR.

If that is what you want, then connect:
a. audio/video OUT of your DVD to audio/video IN of the VCR;
b. audio/video OUT of your VCR to audio/video IN of the TV.

The above described connection would allow you to:
i. watch DVD movies on your TV (your VCR must be powered ON and set to Video INput, your TV must be powered ON & set to Video INput);
ii. watch tape movies from your VCR without disconnecting/connecting cables.

Additionally, this arrangement would allow you to record DVD movies in your VCR. Further, connecting your cable/aerial to the RF INput of your VCR would allow you to do the same with a TV/Cable program.

Incidentally, if one of your units (TV, VCR, DVD) would only have a single audio input, it is still possible since some models uses the white audio RCA connector as either left or mono, the red is right. You can also use a 2 female RCA to 1 RCA male adapter as shown below to joint the red/white audio.

Hope this be of some idea/help. Pls post back how things turned out or should you require additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
